Magthro eddy hits Houston.

A Magthro eddy current plant designed by Rutherford Light Alloys of Grantham, U.K., has been installed at Northwest Recycling in Houston. The installation project was undertaken by Progressive Design Concepts, Fort Wayne, Ind., distributor of the British equipment to the U.S. market.

The system consists of two lines, each including a vibratory feeder, a drum magnet, a secondary feeder and an eddy current separator. The platform and all of the transfer conveyors were also included.

Alan Walker, president of Northwest Recycling, says the system helps the company recover additional metals, leaving only stainless steel and insulated copper in the residue fraction. "This material is perfect for any heavy media plant," says Walker. "Now we are shipping metal and not dirt. The turnaround has been excellent."
